Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin and his cabinet will watch the popular Thai movie “Supparer” (the Undertaker) tomorrow (Wednesday). The film has grossed at least Bt400 million at the box office to date.

Joining him will be Paetongtarn Shinawatra, deputy chairwoman of the “national soft power panel”. Srettha and the cabinet have block-booked the 7.45pm showing of the film at the Cineplex in the Siam Paragon shopping complex.

Directed by Thiti Srinuan, the film tells the story of a young man from Isan, who works as an undertaker and has a romantic relationship with a woman called Bai Kao, but their love story ends in tragedy.
